fishing among experts

Toronto, 2016.08.20

The Boy and I were fishing in Tommy Thompson park today when we were visited by a real expert. The fellow turned up, we said our hellos, and he looked around for a moment. We'd been there about fifteen minutes already, and I'd suspected that there were some good size (likely bass) lurking under a particular floating patch of weeds.

This fellow pointed to that same spot and pointed that out to me. I looked at him in amazement: he hadn't even unpacked his rod yet! I guess if you do this sport enough, you can read the water at little more than a glance.

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

Selfish leaders increase risk by placing themselves first. It's a fundamental mistake to assume that what is good for us personally is mutually exclusive to what is good for everyone. That kind of zero-sum game is for cowards, and in the end, we all pay the price for this type of latent, toxic leadership.
